In this day of coronavirus lunacy, is there an answer that can be found? The answer is yes, but most will not like it.

Just an Opinion

Gail D Prentice

Let me begin here, that this is ONLY my opinion.  I know that many will violently disagree with me, but I also know that many will wholeheartedly agree with me.

As we move into more of this shutdown of the world, we are seeing more and more communistic anti-God attitude.  Nationwide, at least in America, we are seeing police, mayors, and governors usurp the freedoms and rights granted to us by the United States Constitution.

How can I say that it is an anti-God mentality?  Houses of worship, at least Christian churches, have been forced closed, but the Islamic mosques are allowed by the government to remain open.  Our First Amendment Right has been stripped from us.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that.

Throughout this nation, governors, mayors and local law enforcement have taken it upon themselves to be judge, jury, and executioner of edicts of martial law pertaining to what has become known as a worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the Bill of Rights has been violated and annulled without even a vote.  The ever so popular ‘executive order’ from governor’s and mayor’s desk are flying fast and furious.  They are banning rights granted to us in the Constitution without a second thought and demanding their puppet police to exact those orders.

It saddens me greatly and even infuriates me that the people are so willing to allow this, but they have been prepped for years by the media and politicians that they, the politician, can be the only benchmark of what is right and proper for the American citizen.

With the takeover of the school system and the liberal theology that is being taught there, our children grow up with the mindset that what God calls sin is nothing more than an obsolete religious brainwashing.  What our Founding Fathers laid out in the Constitution is nothing more than a novel concept that is inferior to what our modern-day politicians and media offer.  Could this mentality be more wrong?  I do not think so!

This shutdown has brought the American citizen to the point of bankruptcy.  Many businesses that were strong and flourishing have fallen by the wayside.  Individuals who struggled to make ends meet by working hard every day, have fallen into the trap of needing or being forced to depend on the government to take care of them.

Essential businesses are determined by politicians who care nothing about the ordinary citizen.  The elite politician, which includes ALL of them, have their wealth and their sustenance, even through this so-called pandemic, is secure at taxpayer expense and see nothing wrong with that.

 Stores have been ordered by the federal, state and local governments to close or to restrict and even ban what they sold.  Seeds for a garden in many areas have been banned, fruit and vegetable plants have been banned.  Food producers, (milk and cheese processors, farmer’s markets, fresh fish markets, restaurants) have been closed, causing millions of dollars of food stuffs go to absolute waste.  Milk is being dumped on the ground, onions are rotting in piles, meat packing plants flourish while the cattle, poultry, and pork markets destroy the ranchers with extremely low market prices.

Doing this creates a demand for the government to take over the daily needs of the citizen and leads into, not only, martial law, but rapidly into a socialist/communistic society that is welcomed by the majority of the citizens, because they want to eat.  Attack their food source and they will literally starve the citizen into submission.  Attack their freedom to move about freely and they will embrace the ‘privilege’ to move about when and where they are allowed.

With an unchecked Congress and Senate, you will see these elites seize rights for themselves and other elites while demeaning and undermining the rights of anyone less than themselves.  Shortly, all citizens will be forced into servitude.  Citizens will be no more than an indentured servant or slave.

This so-called stimulus package of the government could be the last nail in the American coffin, as far as creating the demand of government dictatorship in the lives of the American citizens.  I feel that this is probably the worse possible scenario for America.

When the government can by its own volition take away the right to work and the right to assemble, then pay citizens to stay home, creates a tax burden that is unprecedented.  I am not a financial guru by any means, but common sense is not a stranger to me.

Our government is in debt $24+ trillion dollars.  Our national income prior to the COVID shutdown was approximately $3.4 trillion.  The presented budget for 2020 was just over $4 trillion.  We are losing money.  Now, add a $2.2 trillion stimulus onto that and if it goes through, another $2 trillion stimulus for infrastructure rebuilding, that puts us another almost $5 trillion in debt.

Now consider this, America has been shut down and not working.  No tax money coming in, no revenue for politicians to spend, which they are so proficient at.  The salary of the politicians, which has not stopped and the pay raise that  they want for themselves at taxpayer expense, how can our economy possibly sustain this?

Printing more money only makes the matter worse.  That devalues the American dollar even more.  Robbing Peter to pay Paul is not the answer.  The only Peter to rob that is solvent in America is Social Security, which has a value of about $2.9 trillion.  Taking this money, puts every senior citizen at risk of being totally helpless and thus disposable, this is suited to the socialist and communist theology.

Add all of this together, and can there possibly be a rescue for the Unites States?

Again, this is ONLY my opinion.  I do not see a survivable future for the United States unless WE THE PEOPLE stand up and say NO MORE, and that may even be too late.  The only next alternative is to succumb to a one world government, with a one world currency, with a (singular) one world leader, and that would eliminate the United States of America as we know it.  Americans will become no more than citizens of the world, which would mean that the Bible was totally correct.  A great leader, THE antichrist, will be at the helm of the world.

This next may sound preachy, and it is, I have been a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for over forty years.

Luke 18:1-6, “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:  And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.  And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.  And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.”

The sinful people, have demanded, cried, whined and moaned for so long that their sin was wanted by the majority, that the majority finally gave in to their demands and then fell in love with this violation of God’s Word.  They promoted ungodly leaders, predominately the politicians and liberal media.  They elected ungodly, sinful politicians, that would uphold their blatant sin and legislate in the favor of sin, even when it was blatantly wrong.  They continued hounding until even good people wearied and surrendered to their sinful demands.

Luke 18:7-8, “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

When we, the Christians, stop calling out to our Judge for mercy and judgement, we fall into the sin of the world.  However, if we, the Christians, continue to cry out to our Judge for mercy and judgement, He will not weary of it, He will reward us for it and answer speedily.

The real question is in verse eight.  When Jesus comes, and He will, will He find a people of faith?

We must keep appealing to God, our Judge of mercy and judgement.  We must keep proclaiming what is right and righteous.  We cannot by any means afford ourselves the penalty of status quo and the sinful flow of the world.

If we are going to survive as a nation, if we are going to survive as Christians, we must continue to cry out to God for mercy and judgement and to our elected officials to repent of their evil governance and to righteously serve our nation, as one nation under God.

A.S. Cooper, Thanks. I just wish people would read this, take it to heart, repent, accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, and look forward to His return, because their salvation is not the government.
